Sample submission form for NMR
The sample submission form to request NMR service is a document in PDF format
that can be read by Adobe Acrobat Reader (often called the "Acrobat Reader" - if
you don't have it click
here for a
free download). The form has been modified so that four fields, namely name,
research director, lab# and phone#, can be filled in
while using the Reader. These fields are highlighted in light grey. Once this
information is entered, the form can be printed and photocopied. This saves time
filling in the same information over and over again, and at the same time makes
the information entered more readable. Unfortunately, it is not possible to save
this filled-in form on disk unless you have the full Adobe Acrobat package
(often referred to as the Acrobat "Writer"). The "Writer" is not freeware.
Guidelines on how to submit NMR samples
are two ways to obtain NMR spectra in our Department: (a)
register as a user of the
NMR system and measure your own samples or (b) submit your samples to the NMR
support group and have them measured for you. In many cases it is a true choice,
under certain circumstances samples must be run by NMR staff. All the
details are summarized on an
information sheet which you can print out.
are any questions, any of the
NMR staff can be contacted to clarify the situation.
